Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

As of 23:59 on Sunday, all scheduled flights outside of Canada will be cancelled and the domestic flights will be cut to about 50% of normal. So basically 25% of the scheduled flights will remain by 23 Mar. https://blog.westjet.com/statement-on-o ... m-ed-sims/

Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

Delta has currently grounded 300 of their aircraft, SAS is laying off 90% of their staff, American is suspending 75% of it's international flights and other airlines are looking at "drastic action". I would expect 50% of staff in temporary layoffs and force majeure declared in supplier contracts to ...

Re: Info on WS2766 Dec 1 yyz-puj

Good day everyone. My parents are travelling on ws2766-PUL on Dec 1. They are novice travelers. With the weather tomorrow they are naturally concerned about the flight. Is there a way to track the inbound flight? Or does anyone know where the plane comes in from, or does it start in yyz. The west j...

Re: One List

Encore reduced the flying schedule this month due to staffing issues. Not sure if that was the case in October as well. So obviously, considering the flying schedule has been reduced, you're not going to see a hike in cancellation percentages. ...in the last week there have been thirteen Encore fli...

Re: One List

That's nothing compared to the peak of the summer, when there were up to twenty flights being cancelled pe...

Re: Did Encore MEC insist on no back flow?

The rumour was that the Dreamliner was supposed to fit in there with 1 or 2 737’s at the same time and that they screwed up so it can only fit 1 Dreamliner alone. We’ll never know but it sure sounds like another “flawless execution” from the head shed. Not sure why these stupid rumours start. The r...

I heard that ONEX was going to pay $36/share before the MAX deal. So Boeing owes us shareholders $5/share!!!! One of the directors at WJ believes that ONEX didn't want to buy us to keep us the second largest airline in Canada, but wants to make it number one?? They defiantly have the funds to do it...

It's basically how much you thrust ONEX on their plan and ability to make Westjet a real competitor to AC... Personally I would wait to have more info on ONEX plan and the MAX, and whether they would shift or not to the A320 Neo and use the more they invested into a 787 order. Don't forget the newl...

Re: WestJet to be sold in friendly deal to Onex Corp. for $5 billion

WestJet currently has a Moody’s overall corporate credit rating of Ba1, compared with the lower rating of Ba2 that Air Canada has. If it is lowered it will most likely be to Ba2, giving it the same ability as Air Canada to access credit, outside of any credit provided from within the Onex portfolio.

Re: BETRAYAL!

WestJet intended for all NGs to be on Swoop's OC, a new narrow body jet at Encore and only MAX/787 at WestJet. That did not happen. Swoop is only a ULCC, with no integration with WestJet. The initial planning for Swoop in early 2017 always envisioned a completely separate operation from WestJet due...

Re: Tail deliveries for 2019

Must be a slightly dated chart because it does not show the tail reductions in the 737-800 fleet from tails moving to Swoop. It is quite current (31 Dec 2018), the 6 Swoop aircraft are included in the total. With 2 MAX8s and 2 787s delivered so far in 2019, the Boeing aircraft total is currently 12...

Re: Cancelled flights.

You fail to recognise that the OTP performance you state for WS4 is based on brakes off time. Not arrival time, or even left the gate time. While departure +00 is an important metric, it doesn't account that in that sample the aircraft went to YYT, YHZ, and KEF, hardly on-time into YYZ for those fo...

Your self-generated statistics don't line up with other available data in this instance, and your comparability of entire scope of operations is invalid. Further, if you can't understand that a flight sold as non-stop departing "on time", tech stopping, and arriving hours late, really isn't on time...
